Tyrone Legion wins BIG

Tyrone Legion has had their troubles at the plate in the George B. Kelley this season, at times, but Wednesday evening at Mansion Park, left no doubt they have the capability to score in bunches. Tyrone Legion pounded out 18 hits and took advantage of a dozen errors to traumatize Park Furniture 28-3 in four innings. Scoring in all four innings, the Legion started with four runs in the top of the first at Mansion Park, before Park Furniture even had a chance to bat, then added six more tallies in the second, a whopping 13 in the third, certainly unlucky for Park, and finished the debacle with five more in the fourth.
With the big win, Legion improves to 8-10. In the battle of four teams to claim the fifth place seed in the upcoming Federation playoffs. Tyrone Legion has the upper hand, as of today, although the four teams are present are separated by only a total of two games. Tyrone Legion has the tie breaker over Locker Room (7-13) and Park Furniture (7-11), but Dick’s Pharmacy (7-10) has won both games against the Legion
Donnie Hunter scattered four hits to pick up the complete-game victory, with three strikeouts and two walks, and his teammates made sure all he had to do was throw strikes and get outs.
Brock Anders and Cody Smith each drove in three runs for Tyrone Legion, and Tyler Golden, Adam Bonsell, Matt Brooks and Kris Decker had two RBI each.
Golden and Smith each hit a pair of doubles, Anders and Aaron Cunningham hit one two-bagger each, and Mike Moore smacked a triple, with Anders and Golden with three hits, and Hunter, Moore, Cunningham, Bonsell and Smith each adding two base hits.
Golden led the romp around the bases scoring five times, Eric Desch, Cunningham and Anders scored four times, Moore scored three times and Bonsell, Kris Decker and Smith each scored twice.
